The Frankfurt Cloud provides an infrastructure tool to support research in the appropriate application of clouds with regard to different user profiles, e.g. data intensive applications, compute intensive applications, communication intensive applications, intrinsically parallel application structures, and intrinsically sequential application structures. Moreover, the Frankfurt Cloud is a testbed to evaluate cloud products and service offerings of the market and to design and investigate novel cloud management concepts, e. g. load distribution, billing the users, and management of federated clouds. Our long-term goal is to contribute to a "cloud management technology" which also comprises questions like outsourcing and service componentization.
